Menlie lives on the plains of Bumbungon, home to approximately 1,500 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic groups are Minahasa and Mongondow.

The regional diet consists of fish and rice. Common health problems in this area include tropical diseases. Most adults in Bumbungon work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $60 per month. This community has electricity, water and sanitation but needs public libraries, vocational training and income-generating skills.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Parakletos Child Development Center to provide Bible studies, special celebrations, nutritious food and drinks, vitamins, medical checkups, indoor and outdoor activities, art classes, tuition, school supplies, English courses and academic support. The center staff will also provide counseling, health workshops and worship services for the parents or guardians of Menlie.
Indonesia consists of 17,000 islands along the equator between Australia and Asia. The larger islands have central mountain ranges and fertile plains and lowlands. The climate is tropical with a rainy season from October to April.

The country squeezes a population nearly the size of the United States into a landmass roughly triple the size of Texas; it has the fourth largest population in the world. Indonesia is also a diverse nation with many resources. More than 300 languages are spoken but the most common is Bahasa Indonesia. Islam claims 90 percent of Indonesians; however, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and animism are also practiced.

When Columbus sailed from Spain in 1492, he sought a new route to the Spice Islands of Indonesia. The Portuguese arrived in the sixteenth century but in 1602 the Dutch began slowly gaining control of the islands. Following Japanese occupation during World War II, the country, led by Sukarno, proclaimed independence in 1945. Suharto ousted Sukarno in 1967 and held the presidency of the military-controlled republic until 1998, when a collapsing economy fueled riots and demands for reforms. In 2001, the country elected a female leader, President Megawati Sukarnoputri.
